Julie Andrews is watching you.

I hope the day of boxes finds you well, and considering I am the only one who reads this blog I guess it does.  Sleep ins, leftovers, family, riverside walks and second hand book sales make for a good Boxing Day.

Booksale haul: Marry Poppins, The Sound of Music, Greek mythology literature and some Agatha Christie stories.  $5 well spent me thinks. 

I now have all the Julie Andrews on record I could ever wish for.  I'm not ashamed about enjoying The Sound of Music soundtrack.   Sadly I have never watched the movie in its entirety.  I was frightened the Nazi's would murder the children and their curtainy attire.  Clearly I didn't understand how musicals worked.

Julie Andrews is watching you.
I'll probably go to bed now.  Or I might make a dress out of drapery.  Whatever.

Obligatory Introductions.

Hello internet, it's nice to meet you.
I'm a student from New Zealand.
I read Anne of Green Gables, watch The Lion King and far too much YouTube.
I eat my Grandma's homemade spaghetti but not canned beetroot.
I am a cat person therefore I am friendly to the interwebs.
I like op shopping but not Mike Hosking's hair.
I aspire to be a power ranger and/or the Doctor's companion.
See you in the future.

Dear Blog

I started you as procrastination from exams, but now I want to try you out.  For realzies.

I could call this post something like New Year, New Blog, but that's tacky.  And I aim not to be.

I want to write better England and get thousands of followers who care what I say make my mark on the internet.

Lets be nice to each other,
Yours,
Ella

Bowling Shoes.

My mother didn't keep many pieces of clothing from her youth, thankfully she kept these beauties.


 I'm very glad they were kept in the dress up box and not given to the Sallies.
Though I'm sure some hipster would have happily paid $4 for them.

No idea is a bad idea.

Greetings internet.
I've been reading blogs as procrastination, and now I want one.
Probably won't get any followers, but that's no reason not to try.
